Non Candy Halloween Giveaway Ideas

non-candy-halloween

Some say the season for weight gain starts at Halloween, not Thanksgiving. Judging by the amount of candy flooding the shelves of every store, that’s likely to be true. The temptation of all the Halloween treats in the house and office can be too much for even the most iron willed person to resist. Even though Halloween is one day, its leftovers keep haunting our homes and offices. Baked treats from work or school, leftover candy on your coworker’s desk, all the leftover candy remaining in your treat bowl, not to mention the bounty your children may have snagged on their adventures all offer seemingly unending temptations. For these reasons, it is important for bariatric weight loss patients who have had gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, or adjustable lap band surgery to make an extra effort to remove these temptations. One way to cut down on the candy in your home is to consider buying non candy giveaways for Halloween. Any leftovers treats you may have will be less likely to tempt you into cheating on your diet, and help you successfully stay on your weight loss track.

Ideas include:

  • Mini Play-Doh containers
  • 100% juice boxes or water bottles
  • Stamps or stickers
  • Halloween themed pencils
  • Temporary tattoos
  • Bubbles
  • Pencil top erasers
  • Granola bars
  • Crayon boxes
  • Lip gloss
  • Bouncy balls
  • Sugar-free Gum

You may not have the house that all the kids want to trick or treat at, but parents may be thankful for the lower sugar or no sugar treats. You may also save yourself from the temptation of the candy bowl both on Halloween night and the days that follow. It is also a good time for you to practice exerting your willpower and shun the candy and treats that will surround you. If you can get through the Halloween season unscathed, you may be poised for successfully avoiding the pitfalls of the holiday season.
